Camp Richardson’s live music, held at The Beacon, kicked off for the summer on Memorial Day weekend, and the entertainment continues on Friday and Saturday, June 3-4, with performances from local acts Trey Stone and Taking Root.
“A behind-the-scenes pioneer of the ‘70s soul funk explosion, Trey Stone was a key player in the era’s dance and funk sound and has contributed his talents as a multi-instrumentalist (guitarist/keyboards/vocals) and/or writing and production of dozens of hit recordings,” states Stone’s online biography.
The musician held a stint with Tower of Power and also appeared on Saturday Night Live in addition to performing alongside Prince and more.
“Bringing his talents to South Lake Tahoe over two decades ago, Trey has become one of the most sought-out performers in Lake Tahoe, Nevada and Northern California,” continues the bio.
Taking Root, a South Shore-based reggae/rock quartet, came together in 2014 and plays reggae hits from artists like Bob Marley and Slightly Stoopid.
“We add alternate and classic rock songs to our repertoire with our own reggae twist,” states the group’s Facebook biography.
Taking Root members note their influences include artists such as Passafire, Iration, Rebelution, Red Hot Chili Peppers and more.
Trey Stone plays The Beacon on Saturday, June 3, and Taking Root follows a day later. Learn more about the free gigs online at http://www.camprichardson.com/the-beacon. The venue is located at 1900 Jameson Beach Road.
